Russian folk music & dance performances
Feel YOURSELF Russian WITH A
TRADITIONAL FOLK music & dance SHOW!


Welcome to St-Petersburg-Essentialguide.com

Traditional Russian folk music and dance shows are very entertaining, touching, and YES touristy.

One of the best ways to get a lovely taste of Russia is definitely by watching a wonderful traditional folk music and dance show.

Some of you may think these kind of shows are a tourist trap, but I can tell you they are not. I have attended one of these Russian folk music and dance performances myself in the past at the Nikolaevsky Palace, and I must admit it was very entertaining, authentic, and fun. The Cossack song, performed by Maidan dancers in traditional dress was a once in a lifetime experience for me.

Of course, they are tourist oriented and therefore pricey, but there is no other place where you can enjoy a vast showcase of traditional music, singing and dancing from Russia combined with a mix of architectural beauty in one hour and half.

If you decide to spend one of your evening by watching one of these Russian folk songs and dance, then check out below our recommendation on where to go for experiencing the history, spirit and traditions of Russia in an entertaining way. If you go, make sure  you come early to find a seat.
